The perfect antidote to a scorching weekend, it’s the Haddenham Beer Festival 2018

This weekend looks like it’s going to be a hot one, so what better than to rest and relax in the sun at the Haddenham Beer Festival. The beer festival promises a full weekend of live music, great food, plenty for the kids to do, and you can try some of our 64 beers and ciders as well as some summer favourites: Pimms and Prosecco and plenty of soft drinks.

The Haddenham Beer Festival is held on the first full weekend of July in the pavilion and on the recreation ground in Haddenham. Starting on Friday the 6th with an evening of music, a full day’s events for all the family on the Saturday, and ending with a day of traditional family games on the Sunday.

The weekend has become locally famous for its great and, at times experimental, live music which runs all weekend on two stages. This year including Indietones, Modern Vintage, Special Groove, Sabertooth Timmy, Kepler, Holly-Jean, Elma and many more.

This year’s bumper selection of food stalls will again cater for all tastes, including pizza, BBQ, a hog roast, fish and chips, Thai, Caribbean, crepes, tea and cakes, and plenty of ice cream.

The beer festival committee work hard with other volunteers on making the weekend an event for all the family, with much for the kids; this year is no exception: with bouncy castles, face painting, children’s entertainers, traditional games, and many more stalls run by village groups to help raise money for their charities.

The Haddenham Beer Festival is an event run by volunteers to help raise money and awareness for local good causes, clubs, and charities raising over £20,000 in the last 3 years. Tickets are available in advance at £10 for a weekend pass, 3 beer tokens, and a festival glass, or entry on the door is still frozen £3 for the fourth year – see website for details.
